Pancake pops for the kids.
Do you have trouble looking up fun breakfast ideas for kids around the house? Do you just plain need something new to try? Consider making yourself a fun breakfast using these easy breakfast ideas. All you need are an assortment of toothpicks for handles and your own pancake batter. Dollop out small, quarter sized, pancake batter chunks onto your fry pan and then lay the toothpick into the batter. Once one side of the pancake pop is cooked you should be able to flip it over using your toothpick. Make a couple dozen of these for the family in the morning. They’ll be impressed and the breakfast is incredible easy to make. Serve each pancake platter with a little bowl of syrup or any other topping, like cinnamon frosting, and you’ll have a wonderful almost gourmet looking breakfast going in no time.
Bagged tacos will change your life.
We first saw this food hack on a cooking show and have since adopted it into our day to day cooking endeavors. Do you feel like you are always tired from cleaning so many dishes? If so then skip the plates when you make these bagged tacos. Make all of the separate ingredients for your individual tacos (cheese, salsa, mashed avocados, beef or chicken, seasoning etc..) and then skip out on the taco shell. Instead you are going to buy snack sized bags of Fritos and you’ll put all of your taco ingredients into the bag. Grab a fork and stir everything around and you’ll have a delicious taco without the mess. You won’t look very refined with a bag of food in your hands but it beats the heck out of a ton of other meal options out there.
